About Us

To Build A Village (in Haiti) is a grassroots organization led by a team of experienced educators and experts in the regenerative land development fields. As a recognized global 501(c)3 organization, we are committed to assisting Haitian farmers as they transition toward regenerative food, farming, and land management practices.

We hold the belief that as farmers and rural communities make these changes, Haiti will be able to replenish her diminishing groundwater reserves. This, in turn, will lead to increased crop yields, more water access, bolstered local economies, and many other positive outcomes.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote, facilitate, and accelerate the efforts of Haitian-led initiatives toward regenerative food, farming, and land management practices with the purpose of supporting Haiti as she revitalizes her weakened social, ecological, and economic systems.

Our Vision

Our vision is a flourishing ecosystem across Haiti that spontaneously produces natural springs of clean water, plentiful water sources, enhanced crop yields, and fertile soils so that prosperity and peace can belong to the beautiful people of Haiti.

Our vision includes the establishment of food forests, water forests, legacy forests, community forests, and gathering centers that foster connections and revitalize rural communities, ultimately empowering them to become self-sustainable.
